Souper Saturday

"I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond."
-Mae West

Happy Saturday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Today's soup recipe is a bit unusual, but it is very tasty. I add crispy wonton noodles to the soup when I eat it instead of crackers for a different flavor. Enjoy!

Whose feelings were tinged with dismay;
She purchased two parrots,
and fed them with carrots,
Which pleased that Old Person in gray."
